Jarvis Cocker has confirmed Pulp will reunite in 2023.

The frontman of the Britpop band revealed reunion rumours surrounding the band are true.

According to a series of tweets from an attendee at the event, the Common People singer - who formed the band in 1984 - called the clip “deliberately cryptic” before he revealed the band’s plans to “play some concerts”.

He told the crowd on Monday night (25th July): “It was deliberately cryptic. It’s a line from This is Hardcore... Next year, Pulp are going to play some concerts.”

The rumours were ignited by a cryptic video shared on social media last week, which was shared on Cocker's own Instagram and posed the question: "What exactly do you do for an encore".

The line is taken from their This Is Hardcore single taken from their 1998 album of the same name, which turns 25 next year.
